He promised to execute people-oriented programmes and make sure the masses became part of the decision making in piloting the affairs of the state.

“I want to assure the masses that their lives will improve better if I become the flagbearer of my party and eventually win the governorship election.

“I have picked the expression of interest form yesterday in Akure and I will also be the first to obtain the nomination form which will be advertised next week,” Mr Okunomo.said.

He, however, sought for the cooperation of the masses to ensure that he won the PDP primaries, as well as the state governorship election.
